Locked: Sony ships approx. 5 million PS3 in Japan.

Forums - Sales Discussion - Sony ships approx. 5 million PS3 in Japan.

The PlayStation Network's success in Europe has been a surprise to David Reeves, President of SCEE. In an interview he reveals "We’ve now got about 2 million PSN registrations. That’s about 40 per cent of users." Which means that, using his figures, approximately 5 million PlayStation 3 consoles have been sold in Europe.

Reeves goes on to reveal that there are now 25 different PSN stores in the PAL territories, and that there have been around 33 million downloads (he doesn't say if that includes free downloads.)

Growth sales in Australia have been strong, up 45%, and Italy up 70%. The market in virgin territories is also expanding; in Russia it rose 80%.Last week the PlayStation 3 outsold the Xbox 360 in PAL territories by a ratio of 3:1. Positive of continued growth Reeves says "the team here expect to overtake installed base of Xbox 360 across PAL territories in late summer."

Why is the title of the article:
"Playstation 3 has sold 5 million in Europe" ,but the title of this thread is soooo different...

Anyway, so did this guy just pull this 40% figure out of his ### or what? Are there a million plus ps3s sitting on shelves in the PAL area?




starcraft: "I and every PS3 fanboy alive are waiting for Versus more than FFXIII.
Me since the games were revealed, the fanboys since E3."

Skeeuk: "playstation 3 is the ultimate in gaming acceleration"

I'd like to see them try to stuff 3 million PS3s into the Japanese channel. Can you imagine all those tiny shops with PS3s stacked to the ceiling?



I'm not sure whats more confusing. His signature proclaiming 8 million PS3 prediction is correct or the thread...

can't a mod change the title to say EU instead of Japan?
